I am a sophomore/junior in the College. If I take a leave for spring semester, am I eligible to apply for CPT for a U.S. internship in Summer 2021?

Pending confirmation from Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and due to Brown’s three semester model for the 2020-21 academic year, you may be able to reactivate your SEVIS record. This would allow you to remain eligible for part-time summer off-campus employment, provided that you will also be a full-time enrolled student in the summer semester. If you will not be taking a full course of study this summer, you would not be eligible for SEVIS reactivation and would also not be able to work in the U.S. during this time. Instead, you would need to request an initial I-20 to return to Brown for the fall semester. Please consult with OISSS about your specific case: brown.edu/go/oisss
